Today is vibraphone maintenance day. One of the damper bar pivot arms had snapped during a GIO online session. I taped it up as a quick fix during the session, and had meant to get around to it later. The break was clean; I had thought of using Sugru to fix it, but that was useless. But the application of a redundant L-shaped bracket from some cabinet furniture and some Duck Tape have done the job!
I also used some large washers for the screws to give slightly more support.
The next main job (after replacing some of the cords) is refreshing the felt of the damper bar.
